MACOM adds linear quad-channel 32G modulator drivers for metro 100G coherent CFP and CFP2 modules

In stand #2203 at the Optical Fiber Communication (OFC 2014) in San Francisco (11-13 March), M/A-COM Technology Solutions Inc of Lowell, MA, USA (which makes semiconductors, components and subassemblies for analog, RF, microwave and millimeter-wave applications) has launched the newest additions to its family of modulator drivers for metro applications at 100G and beyond.

The MAOM-003407 and MAOM-003409 are linear quad-channel 32Gbps modulator drivers in small-form-factor surface-mount packages. With these new products, MACOM now offers a complete portfolio for metro applications covering limiting and linear systems using either single-ended or differential modulators.

The MAOM-003409 is a fully differential, quad-channel linear driver delivering up to 4Vpp linear output with what is claimed to be market-leading power dissipation. It is pin compatible with the MAOM-003404 limiting driver (launched in last September) to enable a common board design across system platforms. Both parts are optimized for use with available indium phosphide (InP) and silicon optical modulators requiring differential drive voltages, and provide what is claimed to be the lowest-power and smallest-form-factor driver solution for coherent CFP and CFP2 modules.

The MAOM-003407 is a quad-channel linear driver with differential input and single-ended output for use with InP and lithium niobate optical modulators requiring single-ended drive voltages. The linear driver is pin-to-pin compatible with the MAOM-003405 for limiting applications (launched in January). Both parts offer ultra-low power dissipation and are also suitable for coherent CFP and CFP2 modules.

“MACOM’s portfolio enables the next wave of growth in 100G through lower-cost pluggable CFP and CFP2 modules,” reckons Vikas Manan, MACOM’s engineering director for optoelectronics.

Samples of MAOM-003404, MAOM-003405, MAOM-003407 and MAOM-003409 are available now.
